Reiki characteristics

Definitions relating to Reiki Healing

   

A

 

Archangels


They   are higher in the hierarchy than angels, (“Arch” means chief) and spirit   guides. They are not assigned to anyone in particular but are available to   those in need as long as they are called upon. They have to be called upon   before they can offer assistance as they would never interfere with our free   will. Archangels remain close to the earthly plane.
